Practicing Private Sector Development in Fragile and Conflict-Affected Situations

08 Oct 2014 – 10 Oct 2014
Turin, Italy
Donor Committee for Enterprise Development (DCED)
This training course has been initiated and developed under the auspices of the DCED, in response to a lack of a specialised course focusing on Private Sector Development (PSD) in fragile and conflict-affected environments, and driven by demand in the field.

This course provides participants with the tools and skills to design and implement effective PSD interventions in fragile and conflict-affected states (FCAS).

Participants of this course will be able to:

  • Understand the causes of conflict, and how peace-building initiatives seek to reduce conflict and restore stability
  • Appreciate the role the private sector as a key element in the management of tensions in FCAS
  • Grasp the relevance of different PSD tools in FCAS including strategic conflict analysis and political economy tools
  • Apply various analytical tools sensitively and appropriately
  • Work effectively with different stakeholder groups - in particular the corporate sector - in a constructive fashion
  • Engage in latest thinking about how to measure and evaluate PSD activities in FCAS
